Boing Boing puts it best: The Internet may be producing an excess of penguin sweaters.

If you do want to do some charity knitting, consult local organizations in your area to see what they need… women’s shelters often take children’s items; animal shelters often take blankets and comfort items; hospitals, particularly those with neonatal ICUs, often accept items for tiny newborns; homeless shelters often take winter accessories like hats and scarves.

We all have the impulse to use our power for good – let’s just make sure we direct it in a way that it’s of most benefit.

    500 children a day are ophaned by AIDS in Southern Africa http://www.knit-a-square.com is asking crafters from around the world to knit/crochet an 8″ square to be sent to South Africa to make up blankets to keep children warm.

    I would love to knit a penguin sweater of a penguin wearing a vest. :) I went to Phillips Island and it’s a wonderful organization and seeing the penguins is amazing!
